INVESTOR NEWS 26 June 2012 at 9:00 a.m.



In August, YIT will commence on the construction of Avia Line 3, an office building in energy class A, in Aviapolis, Vantaa. The office building of some 3,300 m2 is the third in a set of four which, when completed, will comprise a total of about 12,000 m2 of office space. At the same time, a garage with 250 parking spaces will be built for all the tenants in the Avia Line office buildings. Both buildings will be completed in June 2013.

Avia Line 3 is a continuation of YIT’s line of energy-efficient business facilities, and it will be implemented in compliance with YIT’s EnergyGenius concept. The energy efficiency of structures and solutions has been taken into account in the design of the facilities. The selected building systems and equipment will allow the future users of Avia Line 3 to consume less energy.

“The basic design of Avia Line business facilities allows the different functional needs of businesses to be implemented. We are providing them with an opportunity to locate in efficient premises with a flexible layout in the fastest-growing business park in the capital region. The Aviapolis area provides international companies with good operating prerequisites, thanks to the proximity of the airport and the developing services in the area.” says Jarkko Pakkala, Director of YIT’s Office Construction Services.

Companies like General Motors Finland, Geotrim Oy and Philips Oy already operate in the two completed office buildings of Avia Line.
